A SMALL CEREMONY OF APPRECIATION FOR THE BIG CONTRIBUTION OF OUR VOLUNTEERS.
On the eve of the International Volunteer Day, which is celebrated on December 5, our Argonaut association took the opportunity to thank its volunteers for the contribution they make every day through their engagement.
We held a small thanksgiving ceremony at the Volunteering Monument in Murter, which we built through a volunteer project a few years ago.
By the way, the Argonauts association has been operating for almost 20 years and in the last two decades has hosted over 130 volunteers from all parts of Europe in Murter. With their involvement, they contributed to the local community in different ways, and with their arrival they enriched their lives as well as the life of the local community they came to.
Currently, there are Romina and Juliette in Murter, volunteers from Spain and France who have found their home in Murter since this autumn and became part of Argonaut’s team for a year.
They arrived in Murter through the European Solidarity Forces program, which brings together young people aged 18 to 30 to build a more inclusive society, provide support to vulnerable people and respond to social challenges. Numerous young Europeans are ready to volunteer or work for the common good in projects where their contribution gives a concrete result and shows solidarity, and the European Solidarity Corps provides an opportunity for these young people to gain invaluable experience, develop their skills and contribute to society.
And that’s why we couldn’t see a better time to present them with a small sign of attention as a thank you for deciding to dedicate one year of their lives to the activities of our Association.
We bring part of the atmosphere to the gallery.
